Warmachine and Hordes Previews inc Swamp Horror, ROK + Iron Lich Overseer


There are quite afew blogs out there now that post up all the Privateer new previews.
So instead of a post each time, Im going to gather afew pics up and post them in batches. Picking out my top 3 favourites of the lot.
All of these model pics and their info can be found on the Privateer Press main site. (click big to view larger)
With that in mind, lets get to it.

My number 1 and absolute favourite of the recent previews....

Minions Blindwater Gators - Swamp Horror Heavy Warbeast
You can see the official shot at the top but here are some from the stunning 360 view aswell.






 Few men have survived an encounter with the swamp horrors that lurk in the marshlands. Survivors speak of great beasts rising from the swamp in a flurry of tentacles and seizing entire hunting parties in their slimy grip. Once ensnared, a swamp horror’s victims can only struggle futilely as they are pulled into its bone-crushing maw. Only the very strongest gatorman bokors and shamans can hope to control these primal beasts, so taming one is viewed as a show of great power.

OK, I might be a little bias here because I'm a huge fan of the Gators and they are my overall favourite force in both games.Such a great variety in models and game play. But you cant deny that this is an AWESOME mini.

The Swamp Horror adds to the very diverse range of models in the Blindwater Congregation but also manages to fit in perfectly at the same time. With an armoured head, gaping jaws full of razor sharp teeth and those killer arms its a force to be reckoned with on the battle field as well as looking incredible and scary.
Cant wait to get my hands on at least 2 of these beasts!

Next up is something very different

Cryx - Iron Lich Overseer


Forged from the consciousness of a trio of venerable iron liches, the overseer exists to command thralls and machines in the field. It slowly turns as the battle unfolds to allow each of its three faces to survey the enemy as it unleashes volleys of soul-claiming arcane fire, all the while hissing commands to the helljacks that follow it to war.

I told you it was going to be different!  Cryx's first Jack Marshall brings a very eerie look to the table.
3 heads so it can watch the entire battle is such a great concept. And PP have manged to pull it off with another brilliant looking mini.
I'm not currently a Cryx player (want Pirates!) but when I finally get started, this guy is a definite!

Last but not least, my number 3-

Trollbloods - RoK Character Heavy Warbeast


When a remote mountain village is found in ruins with its taverns plundered, northerners speak fearfully of the dire troll called Rök. Although insatiable as any dire troll, over a century ago Rök developed a unique craving for beer and liquor of all sorts, and his raids of villages for their intoxicating spirits have since become legendary.

When he was sought out by Borka Kegslayer, Rök engaged the trollkin in an exhausting battle lasting several hours. After this, Kegslayer shared his own potent brew, convincing the ferocious troll they were kindred souls. When Borka left, Rök followed, knowing that greater fights and rivers of beer awaited them.

The Rök heavy warbeast dire troll character upgrade kit comes in a blister (PIP 71062). The Rök character upgrade kit is NOT a complete model. Players will need a Trollblood Blitzer/Bomber/Mauler Dire Troll Heavy Warbeast (PIP 71058) in addition to this kit. A player may field one Rök in a Trollblood army.

Rok is the perfect example of the power and fury the Trollbloods have. I don't think any other model in the range has captured as well as this one. The dynamic pose and roaring jaw almost bring this model to life right in front of you. 10 out of 10 for this one PP!!!!!! Best Trollblood model so far IMO.

Rok isn't just a model on its own though. Its an add-on kit to the new Dire Troll plastic kit. (shown below)

Skorne Venator Slingers  Menoth Exemplar Errants in plastic!
